Which throws out a large portion of scientific theories, such as Quantum Physics and the Big Bang...

Okay, this selfish thing has come up for me several times with different people and I just don't get it - if someone who thinks this could explain I'd appreciate it. As I see it, by agreeing to try and live out a Christian (speaking from experience here) life someone is accepting they will have to do some very unselfish things.

Please do not group all religious people with extremists. Almost all religious people are not like this and it's a bit foolish and unreasonable to clump us all into one group like that.
